Cattle Cuts (Beef)

Beef available for purchase is either Grain fed, Grass-fed, or non-GMO grain fed. Prices fluctuate weights will fluctuate too. It is best to talk to us about what you are looking for and let us recommend a producer that will work best for you.

Time Frame

Beef will hang for a minimum of 10 days and will need to stay in our freezer for a minimum of 4 days. At this time, we are unable to guarantee longer hang times. We will call once an invoice is finished to schedule a day to pick things up. Generally, we can get an animal in for slaughter within a couple weeks of order, however, if ordering a quarter, it may take longer as we will need to find someone else to buy the other quarter. We require a Credit Card when ordering.

Delivery is something we are still working on. If it is within a short distance, we will be able to do it. If we need to use a carrier the costs are substantial.
